How many people are estimated to shop at farmers markets?



  1. 0 Votes

    In the United States, farmer’s markets are so independent and so far-reaching (with 80% of American farms offering markets, both large and small, in all 50 states) that statistics of this sort are pragmatically impossible to collect.

    However, one interesting statistic relating to American farmer’s markets is the almost 20% increase in the number of markets opened yearly since 1994. The number jumped from 1,755 markets in 1994 to 4,385 registered farmer’s markets in 2006, with a corresponding decrease in supermarket patronage. This growth of farmer’s markets continues, and it’s safe to assume that as one of the few exponentially expanding independent market-viable options in the US, they have the customer base to support it!
